Sheriff’s Department Is Being Fined $10,000 For Only Hiring U.S. Citizens. Is This Fair?


DOJ discriminates against American’s being hired over foreigners by fining the Denver Sheriff’s Department.

Immigrants coming to America in the hopes of becoming a US citizen need merely to serve four years in the military and they will be on the fast track to citizenship. However, local law enforcement agencies do not provide this benefit.

The Denver police department was in need of some new recruits in order to alleviate some of the senior staff members from outrageous overtime. In order to fill this quota, the police department put out an ad which detailed the requirements for the job. Namely the requirement to be a US citizen. Now after hiring almost 200 new recruits the department in being fined for their discriminatory actions.

Via AWM:

By spring 2016, the department had hired 200 new deputies, flooding the workplace with more eager police officers. The veterans and senior officers were grateful for the reinforcements. Everyone was happy.

But now the Justice Department has slapped the Sheriff’s Department with a fine of $10,000 for purposely discriminating against job seekers. Learn more about this below!

Besides issuing Denver’s Sheriff’s Department with the fine, the Justice Department has handed over a list to help the sheriff mitigate their discriminatory hiring practices and give job applicants a fair chance.

The Denver Sheriff’s Department said it was an accident. They didn’t mean to ‘discriminate’ but felt that hiring US citizens was the right thing to do.

Then they issued the following statement:

“The Denver Sheriff Department maintains its commitment to treat all people with dignity and respect, and is proud to have one of the most diverse workplaces in Colorado,” said Denver Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Simon Crittle. “While we didn’t commit this violation intentionally, we accept responsibility and are taking steps to clarify policy and amend language in hiring documents.”

Why shouldn’t local law enforcement be run entirely by American citizens? I’m pretty sure if I went to Russia and applied for the same position it would be laughable. Why are Democrats constantly trying to support noncitizens over Americans?

        Tiakai, you’re an idiot. Dearbornistan has been taken over by muslims. There are no-go areas completely run by them.

          Its the same here in the UK everyone & there dog knows there are no go areas except the
          authorities who prefer to call anyone a raciest if they bring up the subject…This seems to be rife across the western world

        And just what is so wrong with his statement. What he stated is very true and you know it all to well so please if you’re not for America and her people then you will be considered an enemy by this veteran and by many thousands more of us that have served this country and those that continue to do so. I hope that you will be ready when these animals come to your neighborhood and try to force you to do their will. If not then they will surely kill you and your whole family.

        Is his statement incorrect? It is not. Who is being delusional now, you either can’t handle the truth or are too stupid to admit it. You need to spend more time with better informed goat molesters.

    Once again, Federal government over reach on State or in this case a cities right to determine something simple like having USA citizenship to be a police officer. Just STUPID !!

    • Andrew Brenneman

      I agree. I am for LEGAL CITIZENS only being allowed to be in law enforcement! NO EXCEPTIONS! Once the illegals get citizenship, then let them be a police officer, BUT UNTIL THEY BECOME LEGAL!!!

      This is the USA. This is our country and should be run by our citizens. If your not a citizen, you have no right to be running our country.

    Was it Obama’s DOJ that brought the suit? If so, Trump’s DOJ can withdraw it.

    Justice Gorsuch and new U.S.Attorney Jeff Sessions may have something to say about this.

    Don’t Americans need jobs in America? What’s the fuss? or do they want to hire only illegals who might not even speak the language?

  7. Colette

    April 10, 2017 at 3:58 pm

    What next, citizens of Denver will be required to learn a foreign language to communicate with foreign police officers? Hopefully the City of Denver will fight this. This is so egregious that it makes one wonder if the people who made this decision are in fact trying to destroy our country. Only US citizens should be police officers enforcing our AMERICAN laws.

    Only in America, can you have or want to have a foriener arrest an American citizen? I belive in law and order, but if some police officer tried to arrest me that could not speak my natural language, that would be a big mistake.

    That’s ridiculous! Unbelievable BS. I demand a US citizen to be an officer I encounter on the road or otherwise. Can’t imagine why they would even consider hiring a non citizen. Ignorant.

    April 11, 2017 at 8:09 am

    this is bs click bait

    serving as an officer, be it federal, state or county/city REQUIRES citizenship. Whatever “journalist” wrote this needs to eat a bag of dicks

    They have a right to hire Americans and legal citizens, illegals should not be hired PERIOD!! Though I do understand, some people do have legal work visas, well they are most often temporary, and usually a position on a police force, is not seen as a temp job, At least I would not think so. And local law enforcement and who they hire, should not be controlled by the Justice department. How local departments hire, should be decided by the local governments and its people!! THIS IS AMERICA DAMMIT!!!!! IT SHOULD GO WITH OUT SAYING, WHEN IT COMES TO JOBS AND JOB OPENINGS AND WHO GETS THEM, AMERICAN CITIZENS SHOULD ALWAYS, BE THE PRIORITY!!!!!! THERE IS NOTHING DISCRIMATORY ABOUT THAT!!!!!!

    This is BY FAR the dumbest thing I have ever heard yet ! Are the snowflakes that stupid ? Of course you HAVE to be an American citizen to be in law enforcement !!! What , are they going to hire someone that can’t even read or speak English ??? You can’t understand the broken English that they speak now ! This is ludicrous!!!

  18. Sue Thelen

    April 11, 2017 at 4:04 pm

    IF this is in fact a true story, which I am having a hard time believing, I cry BULLSHIT!! This is the most insane thing by far I have heard of yet!! Hiring illegals, or non-citizens to work on the police force. There is so much wrong with this issue, I won’t even start to explain it. The demobrats have gone too freaking far this time! What a bunch of crap!!

  19. Tammy

    April 11, 2017 at 5:38 pm

    That’s absolute bullshit!!! Since when is it in the best interest of the American’s safety is it ok to hire non US citizens in a position of authority such as police officers etc. It is time for people to wake up! Take care of our own. Once they get their citizenship then they can get jobs that would have to do with protecting us!

    We should be hiring American citizens, NOT illegal immigrants for law enforcement positions. That should not be anything to debate about. The citizens of the US want to be protected by other citizens of the US even if they are immigrants that have gotten a citizenship then they are a citizen. But again the departments know what people they need for their office it’s not for the public to decide. We trust they choose who’s best for the job because so many Americans are out of work.


    April 11, 2017 at 11:15 pm

    Certain jobs should only be open to the indigenous population ….

  23. Oxford Mike

    April 12, 2017 at 1:06 am

    Only Christian Americans should be hired for law enforcement. Even you Americans would not employ a fox to guard chickens. America wake up FFS. Cut the PC crap, do what is right for YOU and your country.

  24. Lloyd Szabo

    April 12, 2017 at 10:54 am

    If true, would not pay any fine or accept responsibility until it goes to court. There is no reason giving American citizens first right to accept any job, if qualified, to that position. This has gone way too far!

  25. Catchesthewind

    April 12, 2017 at 10:55 am

    How about hiring illegals to arrest the other illegals and deport them.

  26. Carole Blalock

    April 12, 2017 at 1:25 pm

    When you live in America and your a US citizen and jobs are open they should always go to US citizens first and foremost giving a job to an illegal and finding the sheriff’s department for illegally hiring only US citizens how dumb can you get

  27. Tracy Randle

    April 12, 2017 at 6:10 pm

    Illegals should not even be in the US so why is this even being asked?

    It looks like this was the Obama administration by the yer date I see. What is the status now with Pres. Trump and his justice department?

  29. BillJeffs

    April 13, 2017 at 8:17 am

    It’s common practice in our military to hire non-citizens. After serving a minimum time, they are fast-tracked to citizenship. As long as they are not “illegal’s”….

  30. Wild bill hiccup

    May 2, 2017 at 3:39 pm

    To take an oath, be sworn in to any law enforcement position it’s a good idea to actually BE a citizen. Obviously justice there just is.

    It’s absolutely correct to demand citizenship requirement. You have to run background checks. I can’t imagine the current DOJ doing something like that.
